• To plant your tulips, dig a trench/hole 20cm deep and, if you garden on heavy soil, cover the base with 5cm of washed sharp sand, horticultural grit, or spent compost.
• Add a handful of bonemeal to encourage formation of flowers. Mix it into the soil/grit at the base of the hole.
• Tulips make supreme cut flowers. Strip the bottom leaves, tie the stems in paper to hold them straight and leave to drink for at least three hours before arranging.
